Bad news everybody!Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

Munch, Invaders, Sanction and Ribet are four simple arcade games included in COSMI's Top Ten Solid Gold compilation. The only thing these four games in common is the fact that each game is a rip-off of well-known games from ATARI and Midway - only with different names (to make them harder to guess for a casual gamer who bought this pack expecting 10 original games, one would think). But you will be able to recognize the games as soon as the intro screen comes up: Munch is just Pac-Man, Invaders is your basic defend-the-bases game, Sanction is just a strange name for Robotron: 2084, and Ribet is just Frogger. These games are quite addictive - after all, they are nothing but renamed versions of some of the world's most successful arcade classics. Recommended, but only if you cannot find the original games, or are curious about this early incident of plagiarism in game publishing history..min
